I have a Divers arm badge in A/A with maker mark FIRMIN LONDON and a Diver SW arm badge in A/A with mark FIRMIN.
I only have trade badges to the RE and these 2 are the only one's with a maker mark.

Hi Jon,

No idea - A/A cap badges was enough for me.

If I had got into collars, buttons, trade badges etc. I would probably have topped meself...

Regards,

Chris

Hi Jon,

Been working on modern badges 1993 onwards for the last few years - quite challenging sorting the offical from the PRI, dealer knock offs etc. but there ain't so many of them.

Mind you there are a lot more than people realise and some are very rare indeed.

Still not touching collars, buttons or trade items though.

Regards,

Chris
